Chiefs aren't pretty but are still perfect
NASHVILLE — Chiefs coach Andy Reid knows being undefeated matters most in the NFL — no matter how ugly some of the wins are.
"We are 5-0, and we're not ashamed of that," Reid said. "We also know that we've got a ton of room to improve."
Jamaal Charles' 1-yard touchdown run with 6:23 left lifted Kansas City, 5-0 for the first time since 2003. But it blew a 13-0 halftime lead.
"I am speechless right now," Charles said. "This team is very blessed to be 5-0 right now."
With Ryan Fitzpatrick starting at quarterback for the injured Jake Locker, the Titans went three-and-out on their first five series before scoring 17 straight in the second half. But he threw two interceptions over the final 6:14.
"We found a way back into that game and had an opportunity to go up by more than four," Titans coach Mike Munchak said. "And we didn't do that."
